Is it possible to self-sponsor a spousal visa?

I'm considering a return to Japan. My wife is Japanese, and it looks like we might not be able to have one of her family members sponsor a spousal visa. Plan B is to come over on a work visa, then change to a spousal visa if I can self-sponsor once I'm in the country and established.

Thanks!

"Self-sponsor" a spousal visa would probably entail one of you having enough proven income probably from within Japan to satisfy immigration. Have your wife contact them to see what they say. You might have to use your Plan B.
